Hello to all! Last weekend I bought a D&D pinball machine which has been in a cellar for more than 16 years. No topper unfortunately but it still works

I do have one question: how do I remove the backbox so I can transport this machine? Anybody has some guide/step-by-step instructions how to get this machine ready for transportation? Any other tips what to take into account before moving?

Perhaps a stupid question but do i want to replace the balls from my DND. They are rusty all-over and leave brown smudges on the rubbers. Do i need normal 1-1/16" balls or low-magnetic balls?

Quoted from Tallon:

Regular balls are fine. There are no magnets in the game. The “magna save” is actually a piece of spring steel with a coil pushing it out when you press the button

OK. Bought 6 new balls and inserted 4 balls according to the manual.When I want to play a game I get a
'missing 1 ball' error. Just for testing I inserted a fifth Ball and I still got the same error. Am I missing something? Should there be a ball somewhere else?

Quoted from Tallon:

No switches, optos and they are crap. Double check the connectors to the boards and if that’s not it, I would check for light leaking under the apron. I have had it a couple times where changing to LED’s caused the opto to stop reading. Blocking the light by putting paper in front of the board can fix it.

That's what i thought. Next step is to figure out how to open the apron...

Well..... i've located the opto's and it seems that they are error-prone (see http://www.pinrepair.com/6803/#opto). Anybody any idea where i can find replacement boards?

Quoted from OHMI_Arcade:

Great Lakes modular. I believe you have to email them to order.. I don’t think they take orders online

Thanks. I've sent them an email but no response yet. In the meantime i've removed both PCB's from under the apron and checked them. And discovered that they were working normally when i tested them and kept working after i placed them back I think that just removing the PCB's and cleaning the pins of the connectors solved the issue. Been playing this machine a number of times in the past week without any issues other than a few lightbulbs which need to be replaced.

Quoted from Tallon:

Wouldn’t hurt to change the pins in those connectors. I have as of yet to see some that are not completely tarnished and dull. Let’s be honest. They are 30 years old and pretty tired anyway. New pins will help keep good connection

What do you mean? The connector on the cable itself or the pins on the PCB?

#314 29 days ago
Quoted from Tallon:

The connector on the cable. Inside on each wire is a little pin that keeps tension on the header.

So if i understand you correctly the best solution would be to remove the connector and replace it with a new one. Including crimping new pins on the cable. I'll see if that is possible but the actual flatcable is not that long to 'just' replace the connector. Thanks for the suggestion though
